View Full Version : [ubuntu_mobile] intel GM45 4500m video issue

December 7th, 2009, 04:32 AM
Hi everyone,

I'm new to linux, and I just installed 9.10 Netbook Remix on my HP Elitebook 2530p netbook.

Everyone works fine, except I have 2 minor issues:

the resolution is set at a nice 1280x800 (16:10) setting on this 12 inch screen. While it looks nice, I cannot see all the icons at the bottom of the main menu areas. For example, the Users and Groups icon is not visible if I scrool at the bottom of the System menu.

The second issue is that 3d gaming is a no-go unless its something very low quality, like Tux Racer...ect. I know my IGP isn't tops, but I should at least load a small little game that does more than Tuxracer and other clones.

Anyone have any ways to help on this? I know I don't think I have a driver issue, maybe it's a memory setting? Any tools or advice would be helpful.

Thank you :)
